, inventer of stop motion photography, and his patron, leland stanford, former governor of california. this is about an hour. >> the inventer and the tycoon is the story about two improbable friends, a man called leland stanford who was one of the early robber barons in the american west and a photographer called edward mybridge who was an artist. and they did not belong together, they met in an unlikely way, but over a period of ten years, these two men created, i think you can argue, some of the culture that we have of today which is the fascination we have with moving images. every day we, you know, wade through a river of motion pictures on our phones, on our computer screams, on our televisions -- screens, on our televisions, in movie houses. what is the statistic now, people are spending eight hours a day in front of a screen? we are screen-o-philic if you like. and the kernel that holds these media together is the image in motion. it's the thing that stops us when an image leaps into motion. we fall silent, we fall into a state of fascination, we are mesmerized, and that state

'm scott shafer. welcome to this week in northern california. next tuesday, more than four years after california voters approved proposition 8, the state's ban on same-sex marriage, it gets a hearing from the u.s. supreme court. it will hear arguments for the defense of marriage act known as doma. we discuss the issues before the u.s. supreme court. it's the final stop on a long and winding legal road. let's begin with a look at how it all started. the week of valentine's day, 2004, newly elected san francisco mayor gavin newsom, boldly, some said recklessly orders to grant marriage licenses to same-sex couples. >> we reignited a fundamental debate. >> scott: outside city hall, gays and lesbians lines up around the block. about 4,000 couples tied the knot. it was not to last. at the urging of then governor schwarzenegger, the supreme court stopped the marriages. over the years, it snaked its way through the judicial system. in 2008, ruling banning gay unions violated the state constitution. it cannot be denied based on it. >> so goes the rest of the nation. it's inevitable. this door'

[laughter] >> california founders understood the importance of citizen oversight of local government. our writing into the state constitution requirement that each county will convene a civil grand jury with the express purpose of investigating local government activity. each year your county court, it's citizens just like you that serve as watchdogs over the government the jury has powers and local government is required to provide information the jury needs to conduct this investigation. the result of investigative reports can improve how local government does its job. reports also form the public about the performance of their government. serving on a civil grand jury is not only an experience you'll never forget, but you'll also learn extraordinary amount about how your local government carries out its responsibilities. * i encourage you, encourage you to do your civic duty and hold your local government accountable by contacting the california grand jurors association to learn more about your county's civil grad jury and how you can apply to serve.

in front of the supreme court today. after hearing oral arguments on proposition 8, california's ban on same-sex marriage, the nine justices were forced to confront the very meaning of marriage. the lawyer defending prop 8, charles cooper, says the ban doesn't violate the constitutional rights of same-sex couples, but cooper acknowledged that the country's understanding of marriage is changing rapidly, he says evolution should continue without the supreme court's interference. as mother jones put it, cooper was supposed to argue that california had a legitimate interest other than simple bigotry in banning same-sex couples in getting married. he difficult finding one. cooper found that marriage is about pro creation, but justice elena kagan challenged this argument. >> if you arory the age of 55, you don't help us serve the government's interest in regulating pro creation, through marriage so why is that different? >> your honor, even with respect to couples over the age of 55, it is very rare that both couples -- both parties to the relationship are infer tile. >> i can assure you i

, the cold front that is about to hit us up here means hot dry winds in state of california. that fact is no stranger to people here on the panel. it doesn't take much to fan hot, dry vegetation that has been soaking in that hot sun. when i say soaking, it means it gets the moisture level so low where it's kindling in the forest. you have more people moving in, more vegetation growing, it's a recipe for nature trying to do its thing and people in the way. so with this, it takes a lot of support whether we're talking about the fire lines, behind the fire lines or been above the fire lines to provide that support. it takes a whole mix of people whether it's the department of defense and even fema having roles to play in that. bob fenton, the assistant chief of fema, used to be the division chief in division 9. he is no stranger to this area, born and raised here, this is his home and so he does have a care and an interest in this community and beyond. and so with that it is hard to fill being his replacement at the regional level because not only to fill his shoes all the great work

in california and the children we are raising, and for no good freezing. it is our hope that we can afford and remove this harm from society so gays and lesbians in california can go back to their lives living equally alongside their neighbors with the same rights and protections as everyone else. >> historic that the supreme court, the justices hear the first of two cases involving same-sex marriage. they appeared divided on whether to overturn california's proposition 8. >> traditional marriage has been around for thousands of years. same-sex marriages very new. i think was first adopted in the netherlands in 2000. so there is not a lot of data about it. it may turn out to be a good thing, and may turn out not to be a good thing as the supporters of proposition 8 apparently believe. horrocks we will play recordings of some of the justice questions in speak to a married same-sex couple from california leading the fight for equality and look at today's case or the constitutionality of doma, the defense of marriage act. we will also speak to the wood or of the late gerry studds, the nation'
